This was the first real meal sit down meal on our recent trip to Pittsburgh. We were thrilled to discover that Double Wide Grill had lots of vegetarian/vegan options and was just a short walk from the Holiday Inn Express we were staying at on the South Side. Walking down East Carson is always fun, but I wish it were warmer. It’s hard to do much exploration on foot when it’s so cold.
Double Wide Grill is a fun diner style restaurant with a car/gas station theme. There was a beer chandelier directly above our table. I didn’t get a photo of the outside of the restaurant, but it had a nice outdoor area where dogs can hang out too!
We ordered a full order of the seitan wings ($9.79) with Cletus’ signature hot sauce. It also came with ranch dressing and some veggies. This was quality seitan. Very tender. We gobbled it up really quickly. I’m not one to shy away from junk food, especially when I’m on vacation. John almost wanted to return to Double Wide for a second meal!
We also shared the BBQ Pulled Seitan ($9.29), which was delicious! The multi grain vegan bread was perfect with the seitan. It wasn’t stringy like pulled pork, but was sliced into thin, tender strips and had a good texture. Good stuff.
For beer, I got the Thirsty Dog Old Leghumper. It was a tasty American Porter that paired well with all the seitan, but let’s be honest, I clearly ordered it just so I could say that I’ve had a beer called Leghumper!
